Cannabis Accounting Firms
For anyone operating in the cannabis industry, having qualified accounting and bookkeeping providers is an absolute must. Due to the federally conflicted nature of state-legal cannabis, operators are significantly more likely to face scrutiny from the IRS. Stay compliant and be prepared for an audit by working with an accounting firm, outsourced CFO, or bookkeeping service who specializes in serving cannabis industry clients.More Information

How to Hire an Accountant for Your Cannabis Business
Maintaining proper accounting records is arguably the most important part of operating a cannabis business in the United States.
Why is accounting important for cannabis businesses?
When it comes to cannabis, maintaining proper accounting records isn’t just a nice-to-have: it’s crucial.
Tax Code 280E is a federal tax code currently preventing state-legal cannabis businesses from deducting most business expenses from their taxes, aside from the Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), since cannabis is classified as a controlled substance.
Determining the COGS can be tricky, there’s a lot of gray area. That’s why your accountant should fully understand the cannabis industry.
What to look for in a cannabis accountant:
The best accountants for your business have a proven, verifiable track record in the cannabis industry. If they don’t, they answer to someone who does.
Here are some questions to ask:
- How long have you been serving cannabis clients?
- How do you help your clients navigate 280E?
- Do you have experience serving clients like me (startups, vertically-integrated operations, multi-state operators, dispensaries, etc.)?
- Do you have any client testimonials I can see?
- Can you tell me what accounting services you do and don’t perform for a cannabis business like mine?
